Turf cutter - is it worth it?
So we want to cut some turf out of our lawn to put some annual seeds in.. the area is about 8x2m ish. I have looked at turf cutter hire and prices range from 55 to 100 pounds or more, I assume that the cheaper machine also won't be as good. Is it worth paying this or should we just get a turf iron and do it ourselves? The soil is sandy and dry despite recent weather so pretty easy to dig... we're also physically fit (I would say young but hurtling towards 40 so prob not so much now!😂). I dug a section out elsewhere this afternoon and it wasn't too difficult. Also I was hoping to just rake it over and sow afterwards, could we achieve this with an iron? Thanks for any advice!
